Citrus-Roasted Salmon with Potato Gratin

Citrus-Roasted Salmon

Last night I had made Citrus-Roasted Salmon from Cooking Light recipe book, page 241.

It was really delicious! The sauce was tart by itself, but it really balanced it out with the salmon. This is definitely a repeat meal!

citrus roasted salmon

2 servings

½ teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons chili powder
½ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground coriander seeds
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
3-oz can thawed orange juice concentrate [or half of a 6-oz can]
2 (6-oz) salmon fillets, skinned (1 inch thick)
Cooking spray

Preheat over 400 degrees

Combine first nine ingredients in a bowl. Generously brush mixture on both sides of fish. [i dipped my fish into the bowl] Reserve remaining mixture.
Place salmon on broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with fork. [It took about 20 minutes for us]

Place remaining mixture in a small saucepan, bring to boil and cook until reduced to quarter of cup (approx. 2 minutes).

I like the sauce on the fish, and my husband likes it on the side.

Arrange half of the potato slices in a single layer in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

It is not as creamy or cheesy as the usual potato gratin, but it's light, and delicious.
